There isnt really much to do in vanilla after you get your pre raid bis. I had a 60 warrior elysium and after getting said pieces pretty much all you do is raid log (aka only login during weekly raid clears). You might wanna grind bgs for gear but the way vanilla honor works it requires retarded amounts of time dedicated solely to bg premades. Worst part is vanilla classes are so fucking retarded pvp is extremely boring, theres no chance you will beat a frost mage in a duel as warrior without consumables or beat a backpedalling hunter for example.
Only thing vanilla is good for to me is the actual mmo part. Vanilla world definetely feels more alive even on elysium. You actually make friends along the way unlike cancer legion.
Im just hoping they will rethink the classes a bit.
If you want class balance changes you're a complete fucking idiot and should shut the fuck up immediately. The ONE thing that there should be a discussion about is if it should be patch 1.12 with a progressive system or just patch 1.1 without bgs and shit in the start and extremely dumb talents.
